I can't realize what can you get from courier-authlib-pwd that you can't 
get from libauthpam.

Ah, yes, you can get some mail from a novice asking you why this ports 
exist.  +12000 ports are enough for me.

Well, I'm finish a working set with courier-authlib-pam and 
courier-authlib-pwd, but I'll rework this without them.

I also made some other changes:

- maintain couier-authlib under mail:
  due this is now, more or less, a tribute to what exist,
  we may live without moving this to security.

- split makefiles in:
  Makefile -> for the metaport selector
  Makefile.ext -> imported from modules
  Makefile.inc -> imported from Makefile and Makelife.ext

- modules (Makefile):
  MASTERDIR= ${CURDIR}/../../mail/courier-authlib
  .include "${MASTERDIR}/Makefile.ext"

  so modules are ready to be placed in any cathegory,
  but they must define his CATEGORIES before.

- Makefile:
  CONFLICTS=	courier-0.45*
  add support for WITH_GDBM env
  add detection of USERDB and USERGDBM collision in options

- Makefile.ext
  add support for USERDB env
  add support for WITH_SYSLOG_FACILITY env
  CONFLICTS=	courier-0.45*
